significant impact on this country, and left us a large legacy. i can just sort of recite some of the things that he did. but even that wouldn't even touch in any way the fullness and the breadth of his impact on late 19th century america. again, most of us know he served five terms in congress. he served in the south carolina senate. he served in the south carolina house. and, of course, he was the collector of customs for the port of buford. but beyond those things, he provides us with sort of an understanding and a way of reinterpreting reconstruction, a way of reinterpreting the civil rights movement. now -- so he sort of brings together those two fields. you heard dr. powers allude to his being sort of the precursor to the second reconstruction because of what he did in the 19th century. well, let me start this way by talking about reconstruction and robert smalls' a role in it. you'll see how these two things come together in terms of how he has influenced american historiography. in 1909, w.e.b. dubois spoke before the american historical association in new york city. he did a present
an event al attack by u.s. army forces. they will be defeated. the army will evacuate but the navy will keep up a presence throughout the war. in the meantime, besides the military, actions that are going on, there is going to be this sort of start of reconstruction. i'm not going to go into a great deal of this. but part of this will be taking smalls to the north. to help raise public knowledge. slaves could be part of this military force. smalls is the perfect example of this. dupont was weary of this. he said if you are going to do this, you might as well turn robert over to bartam and let him put him on display. the frepnch wanted a moral impression. at the same time dupont could not spare him. he also thanks to dupont, smalls and the male members of the vessel coming out will receive prize money. prize money is something that would be taken to a prize court. then the value of the ship, smalls and the other dupont bro the secretary of the navy suggested that the others make the prize money available to them. he eventually purchased the home of his former master. another key pla
. activists say at least 71 people have been killed around that country today alone. >>> back in the u.s., the country is still sweltering under extreme heat and drought conditions. according to statistics released by the national oceanic and atmosphere administration, almost 64% of the country is experiencing moderate or worse drought conditions and it's remained largely unchanged from last week. areas suffering from extreme drought jumped from 13.5% to 20.5%. and 55% of the nation's pastures and rangeland are also in very poor condition. the effect of the extreme heat will soon take its toll on our wallets with corn and other crops withering and dying in the heat, food prices are expected to shoot up. emily schmidt has the details. >> reporter: in a rural corner of maryland, it is the right place at the wrong time to live off the land. >> sunnyside road, yeah. it's been sunnyside too much this year. >> too much sun, too little rain for too long. tommy bowls' crops are the worst he's had in 25 years of farming. have you ever seen anything worse than this? >> i've never seen anything. i'
involved in the conversation, here are the numbers -- you can get in touch with us via social media -- we want to begin by showing an article that we got from "the hill" here to talk to us more about that on the telephone is carlo muniz, a reporter on "the hill." guest: thanks for having me. host: about this proposed work group the senator ayotte is shopping around the capital. does this sound like another super committee to fix what the other super committee could not fix? guest: in a certain sense, you are right. from my understanding, the working group the senator ayotte was gauging support for would really be focused on the one-year proposals that republicans in the house and the senate or looking at. senator ayotte along with senator mccain and senator kyl and senator rubio and others are looking at a one-year postponement of sequestration which is scheduled to go into effect early in january. rep buck mckean is looking at a similar program. i think the working group she was looking at, i don't think these working groups would tackle the entire sequestration issue the way the sup
and let them use it to increase the voice of private schools, strip you of your voice because he doesn't think that you all know much about how to educate, and he characterizes you and his allies characterize you as not caring about -- not caring about the students, but about yourself. my jill is little when she says that teaching is not what she does. it's who she is. [applause] these guys don't get that. i don't think they don't understand why you chose to teach in the first place. [applause] i honest to god don't think they understand. and by the way, like in politics, in business, religious hierarchy, there is really good teachers and there is really lousy teachers. there is a really lousy teachers and some plain good teachers. we are no different than any other profession in the world. but we are a profession. [applause] we are a profession! this is a calling. you chose to be teachers because you care. you choose to be teachers because you want to make this country better. you chose to be teachers because you know every child -- every child is entitled -- entitled to go as far as

.o.p. is making him a proxy to attack president obama in an election year. the u.s. military grounding all c-130 planes fighting wildfires after one crashed in south dakota killing one crew member. all seven of the planes will now be inspected. some could be back in the sky within the next couple of days. this is the second crash of a plane fighting wildfires this year. a lockheed martin tanker crashed in utah last month leaving both crew members on board dead. mitt romney is vowing to "do the exact opposite" of president obama when it comes to israel. he announced he will visit israel later this month and meet with the prime minister benjamin netanyahu. romney has visited israel three times before. president obama has not been there since his 2008 campaign. a sore spot among some israeli forces. a shocking scene caught on camera in north carolina. a woman riding on a ferry in the palmilco sound catching this amazing lightning strike on her cell phone. she was recording the choppy waves when it all happened. those are the headlines. >> we're excited. governor christie will be here in an hour. la

also find us online at twitter. we can share that on the air. you can also join the conversation on facebook by looking for c-span or e-mail us. host: here's our question for you this morning. what do you think of president obama's decision to push for a one-year extension of middle class tax cuts? here's the associated press reporting. the president is launching a push to extend tax cuts to the middle class as he seeks to shift the election year economic debate away from the dismal jobs market and toward the issue of tax fairness. obama in an address from the white house today will call on congress to pass a one-year of tax cuts for people making less than $250,000 a year. that's according to a senior administration official. the president's appeal to the middle class voters is aimed at drawing a contrast with republican rival mitt romney and congressional republicans. the house g.o.p. is expected to make its own push this month for an extension of all the bush era tax cuts due to expire at the end of the year, including on wealthier income earners. the president opposes extendi

of boos. >> he literally came to our house and attacked the issues that are important to us on our turf. >> and there you have it. that was the wrapup, at least from that presidency. shannon travis is live from washington, d.c., this morning. shannon, it really looks like mitt romney's just not backing down at all from this, and there are all sorts of people weighing in on all sorts of different reasons for why he may have gone to the naacp annual conference. wrap it up for me to start with whether this is going to have a residual effect in the negative or in the positive. >> reporter: well, we're still trying to weigh that, ashleigh. when i was watching it, it felt like one of those reality tv shows where the candidate on stage either lives or dyes by boos or applause. he was booed when he mentioned obama care which was a little surprising, because the people at naacp, it's not surprising that he is opposed to obama care. he got booed when he said he was a better president for african-americans than president obama is. last night at a fundraiser in montana governor romney basically pla

was longtime director, of course, head of the fbi. this is someone who is used to looking into various investigations of a criminal nature. but also he has a background and has served on a board of the national center for missing and exploited children. so he certainly has a background and has said that he cares very deeply about the exploitation of children. he had a lot of work to be done. he certainly was going to be looking at whether penn state followed his own procedures, and he has said this publicly, for handling allegations of sexual mis conducond misconduct, especially involving children. >> i know you want to get to that report. susan, we'll get back to you from philadelphia. >>> over the next two hours, you'll be hearing about all of the key players surrounding the pennstate scandal, including joe paterno, the legendary head coach that was dismissed in the wake of the charges. in the statement released today, paterno's family calls him, quote, highly principled and says select emails have been leaked in an attempt to smear his name. we'll also hear more about jerry sandusky
will join us again, the co-founder of the senate tea party caucus. first though, we want to get to christine romans with an update on the top stories. good morning. >> good morning, soledad, also developing this morning, investigators trying to find out what caused a mystery odor that made a flight crew sick and forced an emergency landing last night. the u.s. airways flight from charlotte to rome was diverted to philadelphia. attendants told the captain they were feeling sick and smelled something strange. an airline spokesperson says five crew members were taken to the hospital and released. passengers were eye vak waited and put on another flight. none of the passengers got sick. >>> a woman who abandoned her 19-year-old special needs daughter outside a bar will not be charged. police say eva cameron left her daughter lynn outside a bar in tennessee then drove home to illinois. our affiliate wvlt spoke to eva who says she has the best intention. >> i didn't get the help i needed from illinois, somebody at the church said why don't you go down to tennessee. they have a good health care sys

of their color out of an american vessel, be they free or otherwise. it is possible that the u.s. government could have followed harrison's suggestion and taken the dispute before the mixed commission jointly set about between the u.s. and britain to deal with such cases but in the end, they chose not to do so. the anderson case is erie similar to another case involving a fugitive slave also known as john anderson who fled to canada at the end of the decade to avoid prostitution for murder. arrested and brought before the court of queen's bench, anderson was finally freed on a technicality following intense public pressure on the british government organized in london by the foreign anti-slaveried society. both cases also raised questions about the political reach of american fugitive slave laws and the many ways opponents found to resist the enforcement at home and abroad. as in so many other instances, it was anderson, handy and lois who took the decision to act, to get on board the ships in baltimore and charleston and doing so they opened up a heated debate with international repercussio
us to talk about his new book that talks about putting a price on tragedy. we have a packed show this morning. talk to florida's lieutenant governor jennifer carol and also minority whip steny hoyer will be our guest and roland martin checking in and ellen burstyn with us. >> welcome, everybody. starting point this morning, fighting words from mitt romney as joe biden prepares to address the naacp convention in houston after romney's rocky reception at the convention and he is now telling the detractors go vote for someone else. it was a tough sell. he was trying to convince african-americans they would be better off with him but when he prom i canned to repeal president obama's health care law the crowd erupted in boos. >> i am going to eliminate every non-essential program i can find, that includes obama care, and i will work to reform and save -- >> romney is getting hammered in the wake of that by the naacp. jim acosta is live in houston this morning. good morning. how did it go? >> well, soledad, whenever you get booed for 15 seconds it is not exactly going well. the romney
and attacked the issues that are important to us on our turf. >> that was one sample of what we heard. i also talked to another woman who said that she absolutely booed but she said she was not booing mitt romney, she was booing his agenda. vice president joe biden will be coming in here later on this morning. the president is not coming to the naacp. the white house says he has a scheduling conflict and that's why joe biden is here, but, soledad, i have to tell you if romney's aim yesterday was exciting the conservative base with that speech he gave to the naacp, he may have also excited the liberal base of the democratic party or at least african-american voters because i think this crowd will give joe biden a warm response when he gets into this hall later on this morning. as for mitt romney, later on today talking about speaking to your base, he is going to be holding a fundraiser in wyoming with none other than dick cheney. soledad. >> jim acosta for us. thank you. i should mention in a few minutes we'll be speaking with florida's lieutenant gov, jennifer carol, the first african-america

[ applause ] >> good evening. it has been a wonderful day here in charleston. we started this morning at the charleston museum and there were a couple of very meaningful unveilings on the harbor. and we are capping the evening off with really rich
. our investigative reporter russ ptacek joins us now with a look at this rather interesting exchange. >> you're about to see one minute unedited where i try to get public service commission chairman douglas nazarian to just acknowledge the increasing anger about having to pay after having been without power. finally you'll see the clip that surprised me most from the man who signed that billing into law. he has no regrets. >> reporter: mr. nazarian, russ ptacek, 9 news now. we've been trying to get an interview with you for two weeks now about this bill stabilization allowing the utilities to bill the customers for the time they were without power do. you feel like you explained that today? >> i do. >> reporter: people here were not happy about it. >> were not happy about my explanation or not happy about what? >> reporter: they're not happy about customers being billed to reimburse the company for revenues lost during the outage. >> well, i think i've explained. you're not paying for power that hasn't been delivered. >> reporter: no one said that they were. >> they said utilitie
of the work that he did actually laid the ground work for the second reconstruction. another term used to describe the american civil rights movement. secondly, smalls' life is a consummately american story. a story of triumph over adversity, success against the odds, and of course what better place to talk about such an american life than in charleston, smalls' second home and indeed a city unique in its contributions to americana and those things that would become afro americana. i want to talk about smalls' later life. i want to talk about his experiences in beaufort, but mainly in charleston as a way of understanding how these environments prepared him for his later achievements in life. now robert smalls is born in 1839 in beaufort, he's the son of lydia polite, who was the son of -- mckee was a planter and he owned approximately 60 different people who he used mainly in the country side. but lydia and robert comprised the main part of his domestic labor force at his beaufort home. know domestic service had its positive aspects and it's disadvantages for example. domestics were on
localized and you see more slaves and free blacks being used on the steam ships operating along the coast. it was said that the term pilot was only reserved for whites. the planter will operate along the coast after the firing on fort sumter. she will be found between jacksonville, florida, up to charleston and going up to geor georgetown. linton off the southern coast to stop the importantation off the coast and the exportations used to buy military goods to europe. trying to stop any training now. the problem was, to have an effective blockade you have to have staemeamed war ships, you e to have places you need coaling stations. forward to have a stronger blockade. you have to have seizing harbors along the coast line. and on november # 7th, 1861, with 17 vessels, the largest fleet ever organized by the united states up to this time will seize port royal sound. they will drive away the confederate army and the vast majority of the land owners and the planters within the sea islands. they will come ashore and control 8,000 slaves. though not initially prepared to deal with the slaves, th
to discuss with you today. somebody had told us in the 1950's or 1960's that a black citizen would serve as the 44th president of the united states, we would have been proud and many would have been surprised. we might have assumed the presidency would be the last door of opportunity to be opened. before that came to pass every other barrier in the path to equal opportunity wycherley have to have come now. it has not happen quite that way. many barriers remain. in some ways the challenges are more complicated than before. across america and within your own ranks, there is serious debate about the way forward. if equal opportunity were it and accomplished fact, then a bad economy would be equal for everyone. instead is worse for african- americans and almost every way. in june while the overall unemployment rate remained stuck at 8.2%, the unemployment rate for african-americans actually went up from 13% to 14.4%. americans of every backgrounder asking when the economy will finally recover. you in particular are entitled to an answer. if equal opportunity -- [applause] if equal opportunit

useful and more rare. it confines the action of the will in a smaller space, and little by little steals the very use of it from the citizen. equality is prepared man for all these things. it has disposed them to tolerate them and even to regard them as a benefit. and i think here tocqueville is providing 80 years before the progressive movement, 100 years before the new deal, the conservative critique and credential of these programs. it is not simply that they are economically harmful, that they tend to deter economic activity, prosperity and economic growth, it is their effect on the character of people, the effect that a superintendenting government that tends to try to protect you from all damage and provide perfect security, one that's run by a centralized bureaucratic apparatus, run by alleged experts, justified by the supposed inability of ordinary people to take care of themselves and navigate the shoals and reefs of advanced industrial democracy. this soft despotism tends to destroy human character. this despotism that assumes that people are incompetent children in treating th
